Cuttack, Dec 3:
Acting on a public interest litigation (PIL) seeking the closure of the Bhushan Steel Plant in Kantabania in Dhenkanal district, a two-judge bench of the Odisha High Court on Tuesday served notices to eight persons including plant authorities and senior government officials.
The eight on whom notices were served included the chief secretary and the revenue secretary.
The petition, filed by Udaynath Behera and four others through their lawyer Trilochan Barik, sought the closure of the plant on the twin grounds that it does not have necessary clearances and accidents have become routine in the plant.
